    Hi All,

    All my lyrics in my songs are not displayed correctly in iOS 10.

    They include <br> and are all jammed together.

    Did not have this problem before. The lyrics display correctly in iTunes.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Many thanks!

    Might be a silly suggestion but have you tried to hard reset the phone?

    I've seen that with some, but not all, of the lyrics in iOS 10. Lyrics in iTunes look fine.
    I also have numerous songs that I know have the lyrics (I can see the lyrics in iTunes), but they are not being transferred over to my iPhone.

    My music library is pretty static. Mostly, these are lyrics that were downloaded to iTunes years ago. I have had no problems with previous versions of iOS - going all the way back to 2.2!

    Anybody know a fix - or a workaround?

    Are those Apple Music lyrics or custom lyrics?

    Custom. Either copy-and-paste or downloaded via Mini-Lyrics.

    I have checked my lyrics and seems that mine is fine.
    <br> is equivalent to a press of enter on keyboard. Perhaps at some point, music app cannot decode this breaking correctly.
    Try to copy lyrics from iTunes, paste it into notepad(PC) or textedit(Mac), and copy, paste back and see if they are still jammed.
